27 And he [Jesus] who searches the hearts,7 knows what is the mind of the Spirit because he [Jesus] makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches will know that I am he who searches the minds and the hearts; and I will give to each of you according to your works.6 [Notice again! Jesus is referencing their works, which are works of loving obedience to the commands you hear spoken from God in your heart.]
10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the mind,2 to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings [works].
|1 Chronicles 28:9|
9 And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts and understands all the intents of the thoughts. If you seek him, he will be found of you; but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever.
35 (Yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed." [The sword is the words from the Spirit of Christ that He speaks to a man, which words reveal that man's evil ways and thoughts. From the Word of the Lord within: "The Lord is gentle and kind to those whom He corrects, and even more than usual to those in suffering circumstances."]
21 These things you have done, and I kept silent; you thought that I was entirely like you. But I will reprove you and set my charges [of your sins] against you in order before your eyes.1 [God is pure, holy, perfect, and infinite; man is profane, full of error, finite, and dust. There is no way we can be in the company of God until we have been crucified. There is no place in heaven for liars, cheats, haters, those who lust for bodies, those who get angry, those who want something more, those who are covetous, those who are drunken, those whose tongues run with their brains, those whose thoughts are impure.]
8 You have set our sins before you, what we have hidden, by the light of your face.1
12 Who can know all his errors [sins]? Cleanse me from secret and hidden [sins]. [The pain of a wound cleanses away evil, so do stripes purge the inward parts [including the heart] of man. Pro 20:30. God disciplines and scourges every son he accepts, Heb 12:6; he who has suffered in the flesh is finished with sin. So that you should not live the rest of your time in the flesh in the lusts of men, but [live] to the will of God. 1 Pet 4:1-2.]
13 But all things [sins] reproved are made manifest [revealed] by the light. For whatever reveals is light. [Revealed by the light of the word, Jesus, who reproves every man of sin with light that reveals the sins of his heart to him; the light anonymously pleads with us to cease our evil behavior, but men in their darkness do not comprehend the light. While a man may forget the light's reproving him of his sins, when that man dies, he will see every reproof of God in his lifetime played back vividly and they will be his judge, John 12:47-48; he will remember them all and be ashamed that he ignored the gentle pleadings of his creator. From the Word of the Lord within: "There is no darkness but what will be discovered. All sin is darkness." All a man's darkness is exposed to him, either in this life or the next.]
|1 Corinthians 4:5|
5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and expose the motives of your hearts;1 then each will receive praise from God.
|Hebrews 4:12 |
12 For the word of God is quick [living], and powerful [active], and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner and judge of the thoughts and intents of the heart.4 [Paul is describing the power that works in a man to bring him to the rest; which power is the Word of God, Jesus, the power of God. In the beginning was the word, and the word was god. John 1:1. And he was clothed with a garment dipped in blood; and his name is called The Word of God...And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Rev 19:13,16. I am he who searches the minds and the hearts. Jer 17:10, Rev 2:23. And he had in his right hand seven stars; and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword; and his countenance was as the sun shines in his strength. Rev 1:16. Jesus, the word of God is alive and lasts forever. 1 Peter 1:23]
